demanding more details into how the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after five groups of 11 senators led by ron widen of oregon demanded insight into the government's legal rational for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator widen took his frustrations to twitter writing, every american has the right to know when their government believes it is allowed to kill them. very strong words. this, of course, follows a leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing the criteria required for such a strike. the white house yesterday found itself under quite a bit of pressure ahead to have day's sthat confirmation hearings for john brennan, of course, nominated to be the next head of the cia. >> why you are dancing around the question of whether or not we kill civilians? why can't the government -- >> i don't think that i'm dancing around it. i didn't dispute it. >> not necessarily -- >> what i ca

story from the white house. the controversy surrounding the obama administration and its use of drones to kill americans abroad. the administration is reversing course and saying classified information is tied to the investigation. growing reaction to tonight's decision. >> that have been asking for these classified documents for two years. now the administration is handing over administration about the deadly drawn attacks that targeted more than 300 suspected terrorists. in a surprising about face, and just hours before john brennan begins confirmation hearings the white house agreed to turn over classified documents to member of congress that lay out the rationale for the controversy lagrone program. >> they are suggesting they might hold up of bennett's nomination until they got to see the documents. the documents explain from a legal standpoint how the drones could be used to kill suspected terrorists. it was revealed that american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed if and inform high-level official believes the target poses an imminent threat. but there does not have to be e
legally kill americans overseas. president obama has agreed to the release only after caving in to the demands of congress. and today, in a senate confirmation hearing lawmakers will grill john brennan, obama's choice to lead the cia and also an architect of the drone program and a vocal supporter. >> we conduct targeted strikes because they are necessary to mitigate an actual ongoing threat to stop plots, prevent future attacks, and to save american lives. >> but it was the killing of an american citizen in yemen that raises all the questions. u.s. drones killed u.s.-born cleric anwar al awlaki, he was tied to the terrorist plots including the underwear bomber but never charged in u.s. court. iran claims it has unlocked the encrypted surveillance images from a spy plane drone. cnn cannot independently verify the authenticity video which is running on iranian state television and youtube. >> translator: this aircraft has had many flights in countries around iran and operations that have taken place in pakistan, this aircraft has provided guidance. >> the u.s. has never confir
% of americans approved of the obama administration's drone policy. the 11% opposed perhaps ad hereins of the old ben franklin adage that those who give up their liberty for more security metro deserve liberty nor security. hannah, i want to go to you first on this given all the work that you've done in and around the issue of drones. the administration laid out three criteria for the killing of u.s. sit sfwlenz. one, that the target be a ranking al qaeda figure. who, the target pose an imminent threat of violent attack against the u.s., and, three, that the targets capture is not feasible. all of those seem like terms that are open to pretty broad interpretation. >> that's exactly right, alex. i think one of the things that is most troubling and remarkable about this memo are that what appear to be restrictions on the first page of the memo become permissions by the end of it when you start reading how they're defined. take imindependence, for example. the administration says that it can only target people who are an imminent threat, but you read on, and it turns out that the high-ranking offici
of law. the ensuing uproar over the white paper has increased pressure on president obama to release the classified version. a 2010 memo used by the justice department to support the 2011 drone killing of american born cleric anwar al alaki. last night the white house announced it would release the classified document to members of the congressional intelligence committee. the administration asserted the move would fulfill a promise made by the president during an appearance on the daily show last year. >> one of the things that we've got to do is put a legal architecture in place, and we need congressional help to do to make sure that not only am i reigned in, but any president is reigned in in terms of some of the decisions we're making. >> well, scrutiny of the drone program seems to be revving up missed the beltway. americans in general seem content with an out of sight out of mind policy that alleviated the immediate for boots on the ground. a washington post abc news poll this month found 83% of americans approved of the obama administration's drone policy. the 11% opposed perh

's something that because so much is at stake, lives of american citizens are at stake and all should be put in the hands and are being put in it hands of one person and even if you trust president obama with this power, they're setting it up for the future so that every president in the future will have this power to decide whether american citizen lives or dies. >> how much of a concern to you and my colleague andrea mitchell pointed this out that it's not that the white house is not taking this seriously but looking at the public sentiment and the lack of if you will outrage of the public, for example, that we're not seeing does that at all give you pause or is it in your view that people don't quite understand that this is not about this administration, this is about other administrations and looking down the line here? >> oh, i think if you were to poll today and by next week, i think things are very different. i think things are really changing this week and in large part due to michael isikoff getting the memo and releasing it. this is a huge issue. the white house is very worried abo
that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. >> a confirmation hearing will be held today for president obama's nomination to head the cia. john brenan will appear before the senate intelligence committee. he could face tough questions about people drone strikes, a russian delegatio -- harsh interrogation techniques, and more. president obama ordered the justice department to give the house and senate intelligence committees access to classified legal advice just fine drone strikes such as the one that killed anwar al-aulaqi in 2011. >> the methods that we used are designed specifically to avoid civilian casualties. >> it claimed the executive branch can be judge, jury, and executioner. >> a leaked memo says americans with ties to al qaeda can be killed if it is believed the target poses an imminent threat. it does not have to be evidence of a credible prospect. >> the senate is postponing a vote on chuck hagel. carl levin had hoped to vote on the nomination today, but he later issued a statement saying no vote would take place this week. a republican said they were dissat
the american people. >> reporter: the drone program puts president obama in an awkward position as a senator and presidential candidate, he criticized the bush administration anti-terrorism policy of enhanced interrogation or torture of suspects. >> this administration acts like violating civil libertyies is the way to enhance our security. it is not. there are no shortcuts to protecting america. >> reporter: now the obama administration is also under fire for what critics believe is acting outside the law. >> we have a president who is doing something that even president bush didn't do which is to order the killing of a united states citizen without clear evidence of an immediate attack. >> reporter: a lot of pressure from democrats as well as republicans to release these documents and today's release seems time to avoid embarrassment for brennan's nomination nomination. his hearing begins shortly before noon. in written responses to senate questions he says the administration is constantly refining the standards from the drone strikes. norah, charlie? >> bill plante

, trying to bridge the gap between themselves and a number of americans. we've heard president obama do that in past years in very real terms. we've learned things about him. last year we learned that he prays every day. he said he gets up in the morning, says a brief prayer and spends some time in scripture and devotion and obviously talking i think a lot in evangelical tones at the time you look at it in this event that, yes, it's not supposed to be a political event, but it was in an election year where a number of normally, i would say evangelical republican supporters had questions about mitt romney and you saw president obama maybe able to seize this moment, so i think sometimes it serves a political opportunity. sometimes it serves this sort of, serves as an opportunity for the president to reach out, and certainly at a time right now when he's dealing with some very divisive issues. >> they're doing a prayer, brianna for national leader, i want to dip into it. >> -- who have served this great nation, your world tells us of king david whose willingness to place his faith in you d
his administration's legal reasoning for why the administration believes president obama has the power to order the killing of americans. in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me, the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asse
the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
obama in order to push through his radical agenda flat-out lied to you, the american people. here are examples to prove our point. >> you will have a nominee that doesn't take a dime from washington lobbyists. doesn't take a dime from washington banks and when i am president their days of setting the agenda in washington will be over. >> today i'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office. >> will be closed no later than one year from now, guantanamo. >> transparencieiey and the rul of law. >> sean: the set of lies, a brand new set of you be kept promises and they're starting to buildup. remember when our fearless leader said this. >> no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. >> nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have. >> we've been extraordinarily careful not to in any way undermine the employer-based system. >> that's why my proposal builds on the current system where most americans get their insurance from their employer. if you like your
